Pacific Rim Sampler from the Canadian Journey Series. Enjoy the frolicking whales and the soft intrigue of the Pacific coast. The sampler contains 37 bands, done in a palette of DMC and over-dyed silks. Many “specialty” stitches are used – there are diagrams and written instructions for all of them, making this design approachable – if you have patience (and Google), your initial skill level with specialty stitches will not be important.
Each band is described both in terms of how to execute the stitches, and in its significance or symbolism to the sampler as a whole. Jeannette includes wonderfully interesting tidbits of science, history and lore behind each subject. You will feel the grandeur of the ocean and the wonder of its wildlife as you stitch. As Jeannette says,
Maybe living on the prairie has made going to the ocean of great significance but I do absolutely love the difference each part of our country gives us. I hope you can feel some of this too as you stitch the treasures the Pacific Rim has given us…
